Amazing Quito

5/5

Favourite part of the day trip was at the middle of the earth and also visiting the various churches in Quito – loved the cultural experience – Pedro shared a lot of historical and interesting facts which truly enriched the experience. He’s very knowledgeable, spoke really well in English and was fun to hang out with! Travellers, bring a jacket and wear sensible shoes as it can get quite windy and hilly.
